    In the players' table (page 3), I'm listed below a few other players who have lower ratings than me:

    Isn't rating supposed to be the only factor to determine the ranks in the table?

    As it says at the left of the table, the rankings are updated every hour. The table displays the up-to-the-minute ratings, but lists the players in the sequence of the last hourly sort.

    This is confusing, but it reduces the load on the database server.

    Thanks for the clarification.
